Awbrey Glen Golf announces that Kyle Watt will be joining their team as the new Golf Course Superintendent in early January. Kyle has been the Superintendent of the Fazio course at Pronghorn since 2007
Working in the turf and landscape maintenance field has been a big part of Kyle’s life since his first work on golf courses at the age of fourteen when he caddied at Columbia Edgewater, Waverly and Portland Golf Club. Kyle attended Central Oregon Community College in the landscape and turf grass management program. While attending COCC Kyle worked for the golf maintenance department at Broken Top. After completing the two year program at COCC Kyle transferred to Washington State University to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in turf maintenance. While at WSU he had a summer internship at Coeur d’ Alene Resort and worked during the school year at the Washington State University Golf Course. After graduating from WSU, Kyle moved back to Bend and started working at Pronghorn Golf Club Nicklaus course in 2004 and was promoted to the Assistant on the Fazio course in 2005 and the Superintendent in 2007.
“We are excited to have Kyle as part of our Awbrey Glen team.” Says Mark Amberson the General Manager/COO for Awbrey Glen Golf Club. “Kyle brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to us and we are looking forward to him being part of Awbrey Glen.” Awbrey Glen’s only Superintendent prior to Kyle was Doug Feher who is retiring at the end of this year after 25 years at the Club.
